Peel Regional Police are investigating after a virtual court hearing was repeatedly interrupted Tuesday by Zoom bombers who hijacked the meeting and posted inappropriate images. According to CBC Kitchener-Waterloo, the civil matter of Donovan vs. the Waterloo Regional Police Services Board was taking place in a virtual courtroom based out of Brampton. On Monday, Donovan — who is a public speaker and has been featured in national media on policing issues — had emailed the hearing Zoom link and login details to local media and posted it on her public Twitter page. 

Since initially publishing the story on Tuesday, CBC has since reported the Ministry of the Attorney General has committed to "reviewing these mechanisms with the courts and court staff to ensure the dignity and integrity of court proceedings are not subjected to unauthorized and offensive interruptions."

"As a litigator and a mediator, I’ve gone up against some tough negotiators. But no one compares to my 3-year-old twins. They are unreasonable, stubborn, self-interested and unpredictable.
